Wie viele Touristen jährlich Nordkorea besuchen, lässt sich exakt sagen: Wenige. Und nur einer kam wegen einer Wasserrutsche. Satiriker und TV-Autor Christian Eisert reiste 1500 Kilometer durch die Kim-Diktatur. An seiner Seite eine kratzbürstige Fotoreporterin mit gefälschter Biografie - und der nordkoreanische Geheimdienst. Diese Ferien in Nordkorea halten viele Überraschungen bereit: Hotelzimmer mit Softeisautomaten, Gestecke aus Blumen und Raketen und an der gefährlichsten Grenze der Welt: Ein Tänzchen zu ´´Tränen lügen nicht´´. Immer wieder gelingt Eisert und seiner Begleiterin ein Blick hinter die Kulissen des Systems. Schon bald aber geraten sie an ihre emotionalen Grenzen - und immer öfter aneinander. Doch getrennte Wege zu gehen, ist schwierig, wenn vor der Hotelanlage Wachen mit Kalaschnikows patrouillieren. Christian Eisert, Jahrgang 1976, ist TV-Autor, Satiriker und Comedy-Coach. Gags, Sketche und Drehbücher schrieb er u.a. für die ´´Harald Schmidt Show´´, die ´´Sesamstraße´´ und ´´Shopping Queen´´ sowie für Comedians wie Oliver Pocher, Kaya Yanar oder Alfons mit dem Puschelmikro. 1.

LAPD homicide detective Peter Decker and his wife, Rina Lazarus, will be blindsided by a brutal multiple murder in this twisting tale of suspense from New York Times best-selling author Faye Kellerman. ´´They say dead men don´t talk, but if you listen, they do.´´ As a lieutenant in the LAPD, homicide detective Peter Decker doesn´t get many calls at 3 a.m. unless a case is nasty, sensational - or both. Someone has broken into the exclusive Coyote Ranch compound of billionaire developer Guy Kaffey and viciously gunned him down, along with his wife and four employees. A well-known figure on both the business and society pages, Kaffey, with his sons and his younger brother, Mace, built most of the shopping malls in Southern California and earned a reputation for philanthropy, donating millions to worthy causes. It doesn´t take long for Peter, his trusted detectives Scott Oliver and Marge Dunn, and the rest of his homicide team to figure out that the gruesome killings must be an inside job. Things become even more entangled when they discover that Kaffey´s largesse had included organizations that extended second chances to delinquents, many of whom Kaffey had hired for his personal security. But was the job pure murder/robbery or something even more twisted? A developer of Kaffey´s magnitude doesn´t make billions without making more enemies with blood grudges. With leads taking the team across L.A., up and down the Golden State, and into Mexico, Decker is plenty busy - and plenty thankful not to have to worry about his wife, Rina Lazarus, getting caught up in this deadly case. Rina is out of harm´s way, serving on a jury at the courthouse. But then a chance encounter with a court translator who needs her help leads Rina into the terrifying heart of her husband´s murder investigations - and straight into the path of a gang of ruthless killers. To protect Rina, Decker must find his prey before death unites his two worlds. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mitchell Greenberg.
